Scott Morgan: Songs Of Life

Read "Songs Of Life" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


There's no greater teacher than life. Its bounties and tragedies, triumphs and defeats, and strange flirtations with absurdist theater and dead on truth have a way of enriching perspective and giving us the tools to communicate at a much deeper level. Few embody that fact better than vocalist Scott Morgan, who, after studying music in college ...

Andrea Veneziani Trio: Oltreoceano

Read "Oltreoceano" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Since the advent of pianist Bill Evans' groundbreaking late 1950s/early 1960s group with drummer Paul Motian and bassist Scott LaFaro, piano trios have been largely focused on interplay. On his debut, Oltreoceano, Italian-born bassist Andrea Veneziani employs a trio very much in the Evans fashion, with pianist Kenny Werner (with whom Veneziani studied in the NYU ...

Evan Weiss: Math or Magic

Read "Math or Magic" reviewed by David Rickert


Combining jazz improvisation and classical composition has been an irresistible idea for many--an intellectual problem promising that, perhaps, the result will combine the best qualities of both. However, in practice, the third stream movement has largely been an indication of boring, pretentious recordings to avoid. But then a guy like Evan Weiss comes along with his ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
